I bought this palette for the eyeshadows because after buying one Photo op trio i had to have them all and this was a great value. For all the trios is over $400 and this was just ~$100. Eyeshaodws:Very pigmented.Long wearing. Consistent with their trios in stores meaning the shadows arent different and crappy. Blushes: Very buildable. Large. Hot pink may be too bright for some complexions and not a fan of the color.I love the peachy color though and its very nice becauee the shimmer is just enough for a bright glow without being glittery. Glosses: nice colors. sheer. not amazing or anything.small. Theyre not really good bad so just think of them as an extra goodie. Eyeliners: havent used them much so i cant really say anything. Highliters: shimmery. Dont like shimmer so i wont use them much but they are good fir those that dont mind shimmer.(theyre not super shimmer i just have a fake allergy to shimmer. dont like it. Overall I would have bought this just for the eyshadows so i just consider the rest of the stuff free samples. But i do like and use the blushes and glosses.

Applied:this is easy to apply any way but I prefer damp sponges. Finish: satin/dewy when applied to matte when dry Packaging: Bottle looks really nice and i love the pump Coverage:4/5 this has really good coverage way better than revlon colorstay will cover nay redness,acne even did a little something for my dark circles. Staying power: not as good as revlon colorstay but with a primer and powder still lasts a long time.10 am-5pm and still there after running around the mall. Foundation doesnt stay forever so how does this disappear? When it starts to come off i love that this doesnt come off in patches in kind of gradually evenly disappears(for people who aren't constantly touching their face)

I bought this by accident but i didnt mind since l was looking for liquid eyeliner anyway. When i first used this in my upper lash line is was watery it slid into my eye and this stuff burns. Should something tat goes near your eye really make your eye burn? I left it open for a little while so it would dry up a a little and seemed to be okay afterward. Its good fro artistic looks or drawing precisely but its too hard to quickly use everyday because you have to be very careful with brush tips.It dries to a matte finish and wears okay but if you rub it it begins to flake off not really smudge but flakes.
This is the best drugstore foundation i've tried. I apply it with a damp sponge which is really the best way to blend it. I usually dont apply powder even though i have an oily t zone because this lasts so long on it's own. The finish is one of the best because its not too obvious you're wearing makeup. Sometimes i uses malley poreless face defender to mattify my face because this has a dewy finish.(keep in mind i dont use powder which i think makes it incredibly obvious)This ties for my HG foundation.
